I have my own standard when purchasing a watch: simple, real and classic. I do not want a complication watch because I believe in my creed: simple is the best and simple lasts forever. Among various watches in the last Basel Wacth Fair, I was deeply impressed by two: One is the Rolex Day-Date and another one is Omega Constellation. Both have a similar size and both are their own pride. Anyway, they seems to be the same which is perfect for those business person. But a minor difference is, I think , that Rolex is more modern and young while Omega becomes mature. Well, both match suit and which one is better? Now let’s have a close look at it.
First impression: Low-profile Rolex and high-profile Omega
Day-Date and Constellation are classic and both match suits. When they are fitted with different color and design, they are completely different. At my first impression, it gives me a totally different feeling. Rolex’ s chocolate dial and deep color presents us a deep and low-key feel, although many typical Rolex features can be well recognized immediately.
COnstelation appears to be more delicate and luxury. The whole case incorporates many traditional elements and the white dial really catch other’s attention. What’s more, it belongs to Constellation series have Constellation features, it is easy to be recognized. Therefore, to those who love it, you should know it thoroughly. Here, we can say that Rolex appears to be low-key while Omega is more noble and arresting.
Material(deep VS Bright)
Nothing difference can be found from their appearance. Cases made of different material will decide their popularity. Rolex has the 18 ct Everrose and embedded platinum, so overall, it has a deep color.
Omega applied the Sedna gold to the Constellation and Sedna gold is made of gold, copper and palladium, so it looks brighter.
Comparison Between Case-Back
Due to the different idea, almost all Rolex’s case button are sealed with the same shape. But Omega has been promoting its movement, so a lot of watches, including diver watches, are crystal. From a personal perspective, both have 100 meters depth of water-proof but I would pick Omega due to my craze about mechanism.
You will never know whether a watch matches you before you have physical experience on wearing it. Rose gold and leathe-made bracelet are applied to Day-Date and Constellation. My personal experience made me feel that Constellation seems to be heavier than Day-Date. And since they have different design in the clasps, there would different on wearing them.
After a brief comparison, many differences still can be found on them and the difference in the price make it easier to make your decision. From my personal perspective, I like Replica Rolex Watches more than Omega because I’m not that mature, mature enough to match such a Constellation, but the pity is that rare Constellation can be found when I reach the mature age. So have you had a clear idea?
